I’ve had a lot of feedback, queries and suggestions over the past few weeks about our new food and organics recycling program. Based on the experiences of our family after two weeks, here are some ideas and tips you might like to consider.

• If you’ve got kids, get them involved. Our two girls have been fascinated to learn what happens to their waste and which bins things go in. They’re even telling my wife off when she puts things in the wrong bin by accident.
• We have our caddy on our kitchen bench right next to the sink
• After dinner, we feed our meat leftovers to the dog
• Meat that our dog can’t eat (such as a chicken roast carcass), we put in an airtight container and then place it in the freezer instead of the caddy. We remove the container and empty it straight in the green bin just before it goes out for collection
• We haven’t had a use for any liners in the caddy, we just throw the food straight in there. Not having meat in there seems to mean no smells. If you’d prefer to use compostable liners though, make sure they meet the AS4736 standard
• We’ve got a box of bicarb soda next to the bin, just in case (bicarb is great for absorbing smells. Those of us old enough will remember that every fridge used to have a box before they got more intelligent)
• The caddy is normally full after 3-4 days and we just empty it straight in to our green bin and then wash it out with some warm soapy water and it’s like brand new
• Before we empty the caddy in to our green bin, we grab a stack of leaves from the ground and put a layer of them in the bin
• All of our used tissues are going straight in to the caddy as well

A lot of people have queried whether we should collect green bins every week instead of every second week. Personally, our red bin is now practically empty as it’s all in the green bin. We will look at our bin collection cycles once the food and organics service is in full swing and we’ve had a chance to assess what the uptake and compliance levels are like. We were keen to introduce this program with minimal changes to the existing systems in place in order to make it as easy as possible for people to understand and get used to.

All households in Ashwood, Burwood, Chadstone, Hughesdale, Huntingdale, Mount Waverley, Oakleigh and Oakleigh East should have already received their caddy. If you haven’t, please call Council on 9518 3555 and we’ll send one out.

Households in Clayton, Glen Waverley, Mulgrave, Notting Hill, Oakleigh South and Wheelers Hill should receive theirs in the next two weeks.

If you haven’t yet received your caddy you can still participate. Simply scrape your food scraps on to a plate or in to a bowl/container and put it straight in to your green bin.

Almost half the waste going to landfill is food or organics waste, which releases dangerous methane gases as it breaks down. Utilising this new initiative is one of the easiest ways, as an individual, you can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our impact on the environment.

The information booklet that comes with the caddy has some fantastic information and tips, and there is more information available at https://monash.vic.gov.au/food-waste

I’m still learning too, so if you've got any experiences or ideas you'd like to share, post below πŸ‘‡
*** OUR PLAYGROUNDS ARE CLOSED **

April is shattered that we’ve had to close our playgrounds again, but it’s important that we do everything we can to eliminate this virus.

We’ll get through this together - stay safe!

Today Victoria has recorded 288 new cases – the largest ever daily numbers the state has recorded. 26 of the new cases are linked to known outbreaks, with 262 still under investigation. This is not surprising, given the large amount of cases that require investigating. 37,588 tests were conducted in the state yesterday, the biggest total ever.  

The Chief Health Officer (CHO) Brett Sutton has suggested we may continue to see similarly high numbers in the coming one or two weeks until the Stage 3 lockdown has an effect. 

As of today, Victoria has 1,172 active cases with a total of 3,379 cases overall. At this stage, 509 of those cases may indicate community transmission.  

Closer to home, Monash has recorded 4 new cases, bringing our total active cases to 16 at this time. To date we have had 70 cases in Monash. Staff are continuing to remain in close contact with the Department of Health & Human Services.

Looking to our neighbouring municipalities, here are the updated active case numbers:  

Whitehorse – 15
Knox – 3
Maroondah – 4
Greater Dandenong – 3
Stonnington – 12
Glen Eira – 3
Boroondara – 12
Kingston – 3

As with yesterday, the LGAs currently with the biggest active caseloads are Hume (167), Melbourne (226), Wyndham (151), Brimbank (82), Moonee Valley (120) and Moreland (63). 

You may have heard that the State Government is now requesting people in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire to consider wearing a mask when out in public – for example when doing your supermarket shopping, where keeping your distance from others may not be possible. 

The CHO has released advice on masks, which you can read here: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/face-masks-metropolitan-melbourne-mitchell-shire-covid-19 

The government has emphasised that wearing a mask does not exempt you from following the other guidelines – you should still maintain your distance of 1.5metres between yourself and others and only leave your house for one of the four essential reasons: food shopping, medical care or care giving, school or work, or daily exercise. 

I know this has been a disheartening week for many of us. These are difficult and unsure times and the next six weeks won’t be easy. But I know that we can make it through this together. The important thing is to follow the guidelines, stay at home except for the four essential reasons, and get tested if you are unwell. As we head into the weekend, it’s more important than ever to stay at home and be vigilant.

Stay safe this weekend Monash.
I emptied our normal landfill bin on Monday night. This is what is in there on Friday morning - nothing. I’m absolutely flabbergasted at how much of our landfill waste was actually food that now goes in our new food & organics caddy

Have you received your City of Monash caddy yet? (If not you can still throw your food scraps straight in to your green bin). What has been your experience so far?

Today is the first day of Stage 3 ‘Stay at Home’ restrictions and I know this will be a difficult six weeks for many of us. The important thing to remember is that while we may be physically isolated from our families and friends, we don’t have to be socially isolated from them. Reach out to them, whether it’s a text, a call, FaceTime or Zoom, it’s important to stay connected with others. 

There are now only four reasons to leave home, to ensure you can keep yourselves, your families and your community safe. You can find the updated restrictions here: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/victorias-restriction-levels-covid-19

In these Covid times we’ve been unable to replenish the plants in our fish tank, but today it could wait no longer. April and Zoe even picked out a new fish each which they were very happy about. It’s the simple things!
***** BREAKING NEWS *****

Council has just passed a draft budget proposing a 10% waiver of rates for the 2020/21 financial year. To the best of my knowledge, we are the only Council in the State proposing a rates waiver

The waiver applies to all 81,319 ratepayers across the municipality. We’ve been able to do this, whilst still maintaining essential services, because of years of prudent financial management

The City of Monash remains the metropolitan council with the lowest rates on a rate per assessment basis and the lowest rates for any council in the State on a per capita basis

Alleford Street, Oakleigh South.

It might just look like a normal street, but a year ago this footpath didn’t exist and people with mobility issues, and parents with prams, were forced on to the road, or to use a different street

It’s the small things!
Back at an old favourite, Temperance Society in Hughesdale. Always great food and brilliant service. Their potato rosti’s are by far the best I’ve come across. They’re always very busy and with COVID-19 restrictions there may be a bit of a wait, but it’s worth it!
Spotted in #Oakleigh recently. My kids absolutely love it. Do you have a garden you’d like to share?
After a long night at Council it was great to sit down with Cr Shane McCluskey and Cr Brian Little for dinner again at Bon Chicken and Beer in Kingsway Glen Waverley. I’ve gotta say, I’m addicted to their seafood & spring onion pancake and chicken tangsuyouk. I’ll be back with the family!

25 years ago, today

I was at that game and remember the emotion around the ground like it was yesterday. Sport plays such a big part in the culture of Melbourne, yet it seems almost ironic the the most treasured moments don’t involve the ball. With the world we’re living in right now, the memories of these moments in time seem even more special

RIP Teddy!
I am so proud of the way our community has galvanised together and supported each other in these challenging times. I keep coming across phenomenal stories of generosity, but this one is extra special

New Vivid Pty Ltd have donated 3458 bottles (almost $100,000 worth) of hand sanitzer to every state school that sits in the City of Monash. Each classroom will receive 1L and teachers two 50ml bottles each

An extraordinary donation from a proud Monash business looking after their local community. I've got a bottle in the car and I must say it's one of the better products I've used; it even smells great

In these challenging times, businesses are having to adapt to stay alive. GeorgiePorgie Kitchen in Glen Waverley are normally serving takeaway burgers, and they still are, but they’ve added a few new products to their range

One of the owners is a scientist so they’ve made their own homemade hospital grade hand sanitizer using WHO guidelines. We’ve been using it at the City of Monash offices for a number of weeks

We’re not far away from completing the largest infrastructure project we’ve ever undertaken at the City of Monash. This is how the $25M redevelopment of the Oakleigh Recreation Centre is shaping up.
Monash Oakleigh Community Support do fabulous work to support our community. In these challenging times, this work is even more important than ever

If you, or anyone you know, needs assistance please reach out to them. They’re located in Downing Street Oakleigh
One thing we’ve missed a lot since isolation began is eating out, it’s one of life’s simple pleasures. The other day I had a local resident recommend Alor Street in Huntingdale, a relatively new Malaysian Restaurant, so we decided to get some takeaway - yuuuuuum. There wasn’t much left over!

On behalf of the City of Monash, I send my warmest regards to our residents observing Ramadan

Ramadan is an incredibly important time of reflection and prayer for our Islamic community and we appreciate that this year will be very different, with community centres and mosques closed and a restriction on gatherings due to the COVID-19 crisis

I have been privileged in the past to attend an Iftar, where people gather together to break their fast with a communal meal. It’s an incredible experience and I understand this year will see these celebrated at home within families, rather than the community, and maybe even on video conferencing to stay connected. The community adapts to these challenging times and we will be stronger than ever, together. 

My best wishes for a peaceful, prosperous and blessed Ramadan.

Ramadan Mubarak!
Today we’re seeing the amazing generosity of the community that surrounds us. Gifts for April from people we’ve never met. Redefines the saying “we’re all in this together”.

Thank you, whoever you are πŸ₯³πŸ˜ƒ
Happy 5th Birthday to my little princess, April. And thank you to all of our neighbours who have left special messages for her. It’s a tough time for all of us, but especially for young ones who simply don’t understand. She has been made to feel very special from all the love and support and is having a ball.

So proud of the young person she has become - they grow up too quickly 😍
We love buying our pasta and cheeses at Just Italy next to the paint shop on Atherton Road. They also make sensational take-away coffee and they’re open for business during the crisis.
So April’s fifth birthday is on Thursday and she’s absolutely shattered that she’s had to cancel her party on the weekend that she’s been talking about for the best part of a year. She’s stuck these invitations up all over our house.

These are the moments in life that as a father break you because you have no control over them.

Any suggestions on how to make her isolation birthday special, or videos of well wishes to her would be greatly appreciated.
We miss going to cafes for a late brunch, so this morning we visited Dad’s kitchen table. Bacon, Eggs, Hash Browns and lots of pepper. Yuuuuuuuuuuum
A traditional Easter Sunday treat; Daddy’s homemade pancakes.

Happy Easter to all of you and your families. This is an Easter like never before. Given we’re all staying home, what are your traditions?
If you’re thinking about ordering Oakleigh Fish 'N Chippery for dinner, there might be a little bit of a wait 😳
Early last year, as part of the Council plan, we prioritised pedestrians at Eaton Mall by changing the traffic lights so they are red for cars by default and green for pedestrians.

Some hoons decided that it would be a good idea to drag off when the lights turned green, so this week Council installed new road cushions to assist with safety.

You probably won’t notice this for a while, because you’re all staying home, but it’s an important change to ensure that Eaton Mall is pedestrian safety focused!
Zoe absolutely loves books, more than anything else. We’ve done the Little Miss set and last night we finished the Mr Men set. So tonight, Zoe got to choose her favourite - Mr Tickle. I think it’s because I give her a big tickle every time his name comes up 🀣

And how cute are those feet?? 😍
β€ͺIn an effort to meet the City of Monash carbon neutrality target, we’ve started introducing fully electric vehicles to our fleet. ‬

Flashback Friday!

The Mayoral fraternity is pretty close, and in simpler times it was great to catch up with my counterpart from the Stonnington City Council, Mayor Cr Steve Stefanopoulos,

This is a troubling time, but I know that all Councils are working hard to ensure that essential services continue. There is a lot that we can do assist, and be assisted by, neighbouring Councils

We’re all in this together and together we’ll come out the other side smarter and wiser than before

Stay safe and stay home!!
